PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, the U. S. Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary have declared the week of June 29 through July 6 as National Safe Boating Week; and

WHEREAS, this week is being set aside to call the attention of pleasure boatmen to the need for knowing and observing the basic rules of safe boating and for maintaining their craft in good mechanical condition; and

WHEREAS, the growing popularity of boating as one of America's favorite forms of family recreation makes it necessary for every boatman to use common sense and courtesy afloat to make boating one of the safest of all outdoor activities; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim June 29 through July 6, 1958 as

SAFE BOATING WEEK IN DELAWARE

and urge all boat owners to co-operate in making this week, and every week of the boating season, one which will be remembered for its pleasure, and not its tragedy. I hope that boatmen will realize their responsibilities to themselves, their families and fellow boat owners and accept the assistance and guidance that is now available from the U. S. Coast Guard and its' Auxiliary.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this sixteenth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-eight and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-second.
